At GMB, we are committed to enriching the communities around us. We are an enduring firm that fosters excellence, creativity, integrity, and passion for our work. Our innovative solutions, adaptability to change, awareness of project funding opportunities, and attention to real-world constraints, have produced many outstanding projects since our inception in 1960. Through dedication and expertise, GMB will be your partner in bringing your project vision to life.
Clients can expect GMB to not only provide quality design, but also to keep your best interests at the forefront. Our consulting services go beyond traditional A/E design to achieve your overall goals – from funding grants and low-interest loans, alternative solutions evaluation, asset management and mapping, facilitating stakeholder communications, and beyond.
GMB strives to be the leader in design and stewardship of sustainable communities in the Chesapeake Bay and Delaware, Maryland and Virginia coastal environments. We are committed to applying sustainable design principles to every GMB project aside from their mandate by design review agencies. We have several Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accredited professionals on staff, as well as a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) and a Certified Climate Change Professional (CC-P). GMB has served multiple clients in identifying and addressing their vulnerable infrastructure and community assets.
GMB’s encourages a culture of community service. Our team members make our communities stronger through volunteering, serving on civic organizations, supporting local events, and charitable contributions such as our annual United Way giving campaign. Additionally, we believe that supporting education is paramount to cultivating the next generation of design professionals. Our staff is heavily involved in GMB’s internal mentoring practice, the Architectural-Construction-Engineering (ACE) community-wide mentoring program, GMB’s college and high-school internship arrangement, and partnering with local school systems, colleges, and universities on educational opportunities and knowledge-sharing.
